Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 26, 2021) - Pan Andean Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: PAD) ("Pan Andean" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") agreement with Belmont Resources Inc. ("BEA" or "Belmont") to acquire a 25% interest in the A Block of the Kibby Basin Lithium Project (the "Kibby Lithium Property").

Belmont is the owner of the property known as the A Block, located 65 km north of Clayton Valley, Nevada, U.S.A. (2,971 acres, 1,202 ha) claim block.

The Kibby Lithium Property is approximately halfway between Las Vegas and Reno and located 65 km north of Clayton Valley Basin with Albemarle Corporation's lithium brine producing operations (Silver Peak Mine). Analyzing geophysical and drilling data, Belmont believes there is great potential for both brine and clay lithium in the Kibby Basin.

"The Kibby Lithium Property adds significant upside potential to the Company's position," said Spencer Huh, President and CEO of the Company.

This non-binding LOI allows for a 15-day period which Pan Andean will perform due diligence on the A Block.
